“Only for a bit” – Nayana Nair

i know what is right for me
and you obviously are not.
you are not good for me.
take it any way you want.

but it is raining outside.
so today,
i let myself miss you a bit.

today, the world is breaking apart silently.
today, i am vanishing.
today, i am less hungry for everything.

today i am too tired to be me.
too tired to wish you well.
i let myself resent you a bit as well.


  1. OMGosh, that’s beautiful and sad at the same time. Awesome poem.

        You are welcome, glad I could get caught up on reading your tender writings.

  3. Here you could get a somewhat magical feeling that if ‘you’ were not to reject the other ‘you’ then confusion would arise, requiring some magic dust to resolve the dilemma ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Lovely melancholy!
